Sacramento Here We Come
Anyone familiar with how decisions get made in Sacramento knows how important it is to have a physical presence in the state capital. That’s why the Bay Area Council is excited to announce it will be opening an office just a stone’s throw from the capitol building. Having a physical presence in Sacramento will help us stay on top of the latest developments involving some of our lead policy priorities, including reforming the California Environmental Quality Act, advocating for high speed rail and early investment to modernize Caltrain and winning reforms to public pensions – the latter an issue on which we’re partnering with the Silicon Valley Leadership Group to produce results. Much of our healthcare policy work also runs through Sacramento. The new office will also provide a great platform for our members to hold meetings. An exact move-in date hasn’t been set, so stay tuned for more information about our grand opening event.
